Cashier fined RM6,000 for withdrawing RM10,000 from customer's account

KUALA LUMPUR: A cashier was fined RM6,000 in default of eight months jail by a Sessions Court here for making an unauthorised withdrawal of RM10,000 using an ATM card that belonged to a customer.
Zuraidah Abdullah, 31, admitted to withdrawing the money using the card that belonged to Malkeet Kaur, 40, at a sports shop, Sports Planet Odeon Walk, Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman here at 6pm on Oct 1.
She also used RM184 belonging to the victim, who is a housewife, by swiping the card to buy a pair of sports shoes at the shop.
The offence under Section 4(1) of the Computer Crimes Act 1997 carries a maximum fine of RM50,000, or maximum five years jail or both.
The victim then accidentally left her card at the counter before realising it the next day.
When she made a check on her account, she realised there was a withdrawal totaling RM10,184.
A check on Sports Planet CCTV footage revealed the accused taking the card and another CCTV footage showed the accused making the withdrawal.
DPP Amira Sariaty Zainal told the court that the accused had committed a serious offence and asked for a just sentence.
Zuraidah, who was unrepresented, asked for a low fine.
"I am not working now, only my husband does. I have two children," she said.
Sessions Court judge Syed Faisal Syed Amir then passed the sentence.
